Wincanton wins WH Smith work

Wincanton has been given a three-year extension to its transport management contract with WH Smith, the logistics firm announced yesterday. The contract covers WH Smith hubs in Swindon, Dunstable and Birmingham and extends the Chippenham-based firm’s 20-year relationship with the high street retailer. David McKinlay, supply chain director at WH Smith, cited Wincanton’s ability to cut carbon emissions and create “significant economies of scale” as key to the deal.
